I am starting my own business, and I am curious how you guys charge for doing barkmulch. Say a person wants you to put barkmulch around their house. Lets say you can get the mulch for $28 a yard. Do you just add a percentage to the mulch and then charge extra for the delivery, edging and installation. Or do you just charge a flat fee per yard of mulch?? and everything is included?? Can you guys give me some numbers so I know I am in the ballpark. Thanks for your time and your help...

We charge $50.00 per yard includeds installation. Our cost on mulch approx. $15.00 for dark ceder, $14.00 for light ceder, $16.00 red ceder and $18.00 for hemlock. Buy bulk in bags or plain bulk. We get some of our mulch from Morse Bros in Maine! They will deliver a trailer truck right to you.

3 notes for you:

1 - Welcome aboard.

2 - Run a search. There are about 30 threads on mulch pricing here. This is a relatively simple topic, so I can't imagine that you wouldn't find the answer in one of those.
